I love giving gifts; I love the surprise of a gift and the smile that fills the person you’re giving it to. That’s why Christmas and birthdays are some of my favorite occasions. Whether it’s something small or something more extravagant, it’s always a lovely gesture to give someone a gift. The gifts I love the most are the smallest ones and the most thoughtful. I have received so many gifts throughout my years that I cherish so much, but there’s one that holds on to my heart.
My grandfather gave me his St. Christopher necklace when I left home to come and live here in America. He wore it around his neck throughout the many years he worked in Saudi Arabia away from his family and home. It guided him and give him a warm heart during tough times and now it’s in my hands and I will cherish it forever. Although I’m scared to wear it as I’m afraid I might lose it, it still hangs delicately above my bed.
What’s the best gift you’ve given someone?
